Georginio Wijnaldum has joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer from Liverpool, signing a three-year deal with the Ligue 1 club.

Wijnaldum left Liverpool at the end of the season after opting not to sign an extension to his contract at Anfield.

He will now play under Mauricio Pochettino in France.

Barcelona and Bayern Munich had both been trying to sign the midfielder.

“Joining Paris Saint-Germain is a new challenge for me,” Wijnaldum said.

“I join one of the best teams in Europe and I am determined to bring my desire and my determination to this ambitious project.”

“Paris Saint-Germain has proved its status in recent years.”

“And I am certain that together, for our supporters, we can go even further and higher.”

Wijnaldum leaves Liverpool as a legend

Wijnaldum, who made 237 appearances for Liverpool since joining from Newcastle in July 2016.

He won the Champions League and Premier League during his five-year spell at Anfield.

The 30-year-old was given a guard of honour in his final Liverpool game last month.

This was Liverpool’s 2-0 home win over Crystal Palace.

The win guaranteed Jurgen Klopp’s side a spot in next season’s Champions League.

He failed to agree new terms with Liverpool after negotiations hit an impasse over salary and the length of a deal.
